Maria it depends. If you did a great job of removing the paper and the adhesive from the walls so that they are clean and were previously painted, you really won't have to prime. If the walls are dinged up and need some patching, etc. you will need a quality latex drywall primer. If the walls are clean but glossy, a bonding primer would work better.

When I remove paper, clean the past off, I always prime with Gardz to seal in any residue that may have been missed, any damaged areas are made solid for repairing, good primer for any top coat.
An oil coat ( like cover stain) would do the same, Gardz is easier.

I have always used BIN 123 Primer after wallpaper removal. It is water based and the finish coat looks great and no paste burn through. I never prime and paint the same day. I allow 24 hrs to dry .

One of these days it will bite you in the *ss, 123 is NOT recommended for this, old residual paste WILL come through it. Might take a day, week, year, but it will.
Gardz or oil only for this situation.
